Diagnosis part 2.5 —— Tip of the day 33

Diagnosis Part 2 —-Tip o the day 32

    procrastination, losing things, forgetting things, arriving late, saying and doing things impulsively and  inappropriately, failing responsibilities and breaking promises.                  lacking patience, can’t finish things, things don’t turn out  right.                                         feeling pressured, rushed, frantic, overwhelmed, disorganized.  sometimes demoralized.

Well, doesn’t everyone have some of those some of the time?  Probably.  I think so.  I’m not sure.

But I have a lot of that and  most of the time.  It sounds like ME.  It significantly decreases the quality of my life.   Not anymore though, because strategies have made it managable.   I have ADD.

I googled adult ADD testing and got 15,400,000 hits.  That is not an error, five zeroes.

Some of those sites are garbage. after all , it’s the net.  But there’s a lot of free testing there.

If you have ADD, it’s good to know it-then you can start on strategies.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
